I really have nothing to compare it to this is my first 36hp based motor. It does have a nice sound to it.

Welp this happened 4 hrs into my cruise to Dallas. I was just humming along keeping a steady speed of 55-65 mph, when I heard an unusual sound, at first I thought it was a fan noise, but it's definitely something internal. Unfortunately it will be a few months before I will have a change to get it back and open it up and see what's going on.
